The generically beautiful Summerset is on the smaller side in terms of overall new additions to The Elder Scrolls Online, but even after completing the majority of the side quests and all of the main storyline I feel compelled to go back. The storytelling continues to improve on last year's excellent Morrowind expansion, with Zenimax Online not shying away from some of the darkest sides of Tamriel. While the Psijic Order quest line has its boring bits, the down-to-earth, human story makes putting up with the repetitive quests worth the hassle. The new jewelry crafting profession, on the other hand, is far too time-consuming to be practical without spending money at the Crown Shop.

There's still a significant player population in ESO, and if you're an Elder Scrolls fan, or just looking to get into a game you can play for a while, Summerset is a good fit for you.

Summerset is the best evolution that The Elder Scrolls Online could have. An expansion that brings more personality to the game, with lots of quality content and made for both veterans and newcomers. Summerset is the best thing that has happened to TESO by far.

Fun by yourself and with others too, Summerset dosen't add much to the formula but will entertain for all of its thirty hours or so.
